  1. 1. Mercury and methyl mercury release in soil and water - their relationship with different properties in Skogaryd

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Linnéa Johansson; [2020-07-08]
    Keywords : mercury; methylmercury; demethylation; pH; dissolved oxygen and total organic content;

    Abstract : In Skogaryd research site, water samples were taken and analysed for total mercury (Hgtot) andmethylmercury (MeHg) concentration along with the pH, dissolved oxygen (DO) and total organiccontent (TOC). This to give the condition of the site before the forest is clear-cute and a part of theland rewetted to a wetland. READ MORE

  2. 2. Implementation of Swedish Risk Assessment Guidelines in Kodaikanal, India : A Study of Mercury Contamination in an Area Near a Former Thermometer Factory

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Anna Lindholm; Carin Hayer; [2020]
    Keywords : Mercury contamination; Thermometer Factory Kodaikanal; Risk Assessment in Sweden; Risk Assessment in India; Environmental Legislation; Remediation Methods; Sustainable Development Goals;

    Abstract : The aim of the project was to make a detailed risk assessment using Swedish guidelines for a factory site in Kodaikanal, South India, and a nearby village called Vellagavi. The study areas were chosen due to previous records of mercury contamination on the factory site and a possible spread to Vellagavi. READ MORE

  4. 4. Theoretical design of an XRF system for environmental measurements of Mercury in fiber banks

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Institutionen för elektronikkonstruktion

    Author : Runpeng Yu; [2020]
    Keywords : XRF detection system; MCNP modelling; Mercury; Fiber bank;

    Abstract : This thesis demonstrates the advantages of using the Energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (ED-XRF) system to quantify the mercury content in fiber banks at first. The Monte Carlo N-Particle (MCNP) code was then used to simulate the XRF system model with suitable parameters such as the input X-ray energy level, the detector material, and the environmental factor (water depth).

  5. 5. The Solar System Around a Binary Star

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Astronomi

    Author : Jesper Nielsen; [2019]
    Keywords : planetary system stability; binary star; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The observations of circumbinary planets have confirmed that these can in fact be stable. While previous studies on circumbinary planets have been done, not many have been made on systems containing multiple circumbinary planets on eccentric orbits. READ MORE
